Others may chime in, my experience is good. However, you must read the fine print on each rv park, they have lots of variations. I used it out of season, called ahead each day, got in no prob. In season, a lot of parks full. For the $40 annual fee, you will break even after a couple of uses.

I just got a membership. Looking forward to using it when we head back to Florida in a couple of months. Should be easy to recoup the $40. Our friends use it all the time and really like it.

X2 rogerdoger. Some of the cg's aren't 'resorts', but when the price per day is below $20, one can't really complain. Also, there are some states where PA doesn't have any hardly at all. At least you can surf their website and see if it will work for you.

if the parks are located where you want to go, if sites are open on days you wish to be there, and if you'd use it enough to pay for it the membership, it can be a good deal .... we tried it and it didn't work for us .... that isn't to say that at some time in the future things couldn't change

We use it basically for one and two night stays while on the road for extended periods of time to and from destinations. Its a good deal.

Can't beat it, We used it on our first cross country in 2005 and payed as little as $7.00 a night, now don't expect Fort Wilderness but since we had everything we needed in the bus it was great. We used it again last year on our second CC trip and even thouge the prices went up Ya Still Can't Beat It.

Lots of threads here regarding PA. We are members. It's cheap so just a couple three uses a year and it pays for itself. I check their website for participating CG when we travel and know all the nearby CG. Read the restrictions carefully as they do vary from CG to CG, weekday/weekend, seasonal, etc. If you are outside the restrictions don't be afraid to ask for an exception, I often find the PA price will be allowed. The CG would rather have half the money than none.

Pro's= 1/2 price Sunday thru Thursday
Con's= full price in most places over the weekend

For 44 bucks 2 nights stay and it's paid for, the rest of the year it's "free" I have carried PA for 11 years and never regretted it.

I've been a member of PA for 3 years. At the time of my first renewal I bought a lifetime membership. It has long since paid for itself. You have to pay attention to the rules of the individual parks and accommodate your travels to the pricing schedules. Sometimes, just for an overnight, you have to settle for less than ideal camping. It works well for me.

I'm in my second year now with PA. It has paid for itself each year. I think it's a good deal even though there are per campground restrictions.

As long as you understand the CG's are not resorts it is great. Having said they are not resorts I will say there are many very nice CG's in the system. Stayed at one (Stagecoach) in Branson, for 11 nights and saved $222. Plan to stay their again this fall.

Have stayed at some for $10 that really are no more than a safe place to hookup for the night.

I consider PA to be the best RV club available.
